Butyl Cellosolve Acetate Solvent is a high boiling, slow evaporating solvent that has limited water solubility, but is miscible with alcohols and ketones. Because it exhibits good compatibility with various coatings resins, Butyl Cellosolve Acetate Solvent is used in many coatings applications. It provides good tolerance for aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons and may be used to replace these solvents to enhance application properties such as brushability or roll application in high performance coatings. The slow evaporation rate of Butyl Cellosolve Acetate Solvent also makes it ideal for use in specialty printing inks.
